Conversation With An Older Woman

There are tales

to be told

of other continents;

she declines.

There were warnings

that petticoats

would drive men wild;

quaint days.

There was a

chance meeting with

Saul Bellow;

a prized book.

There are promptings

to write down

her memoirs;

she resists.

  1. Once I posted this, the format looks like it is a poem. It isn’t. Just a few thoughts on a conversation with a woman who has had an extremely interesting life. “You need to write your memoirs down!” I keep imploring her. She shrugs it off.
